N. V. Gogol's eschatology

Voropaev V.A., Doctor in Philology, Professor, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia, voropaevvl@bk.ru
Abstract
Eschatological issues were Gogol’s problems throughout his life. Almost all of his work, both artistic and journalistic, were imbued with Apocalyptic mood. Being an Orthodox, Gogol built his life in accordance to the church calendar which includes the annual charter of holidays and worship when the cycle of readings of the Gospel is repeated for the teachings of spiritual growth of a man. Gogol’s Eschatology rooted in apocalyptic New Testament and patristic heritage. His notes on the margins in the Bible testify his steadfast and abiding interest to eschatological matters of Scripture. The words "Even so, come, Lord Jesus" (Revelation 22: 20), carved on the tombstone of Gogol, express, without doubt, the most important thing in his life and work: the desire for the acquisition of the Holy Spirit and soul preparation for the meeting with the Lord.

Keywords: Gogol, a religious world view, eschatology, apocalyptic New Testament, artistic creativity, prayer.

Column: World Literature. Textual Criticism
